In order to be considered for admission to Seton Hall Prep for the 9th grade, an applicant must fulfill the following requirements:

  2. Complete the official Seton Hall Preparatory School Entrance Examination.  Please note that Seton Hall Prep does not recognize nor will consider SSAT or other standardized tests as substitutes.
  3. Submit final transcripts for the 6th and 7th grade and for the first marking period(s) of the 8th grade. In order to do this, complete the Transcript Release Form and return it to the applicant's current school so that they can forward his records to Seton Hall Prep. 

Once you have completed your online application, you will be able to log into our website and check the status of your application.  Admission to 9th grade is based upon an applicant’s performance on The Seton Hall Prep Entrance/Scholarship/Placement Exam AND upon his 6th, 7th, and 8th grade records.

The Prep's Admission Office welcomes letters of recommendation for applicants, but they are NOT a required element of the SHP application process.
